Antique Japanese Obi I bought in Japan many moons ago, background is gold leaf, still have a few details to do and tidy the edges.Next to paint is the antique kimono style jacket on the left. Such exquisite faded colours, can’t wait to start it. Obi on gold leaf is 78x73cm.

So happy I framed this myself. I’m always scrounging for old frames with faded patinas. Now I have all the tools to do them at home. Big saving 🤩

Another reworked piece. “Moody chameleon girl”
Oil and acrylic on archival board. 78x57cm
I really enjoy the unexpected when mixing oils and water based paint. Most of my “Fashion and jewellery” works are about the absence of, rather than the presence of a figure. 
This one shows the figure to be fully aware of herself. Humans create beautiful items that live way past the lifespan of most people. 
I treasure old, worn and loved pieces of clothing and jewellery... and of course skulls and human bones, faded roses etc...

Washy floaty sketchy jelly fishy.

This one is from last year, in the second wave of jellyfish obsession. It’s a nice reminder of how much I enjoy using #archesoilpaper. It’s well suited to me when my work in oils is so often mistaken for watercolour. This paper is lovely with light layers - absorbs perfectly - but also can take a bit of thick and heavy when the time is right!

“Girl in a coat” Oil on archival board. There are a lot of “Richter” inspired “rolling on the layers”of some thin and some thick paint. 
It’s a moody painting but is very resonant of myself and my emotions. Although inspired by “The monk at the sea” I assure you that is not what I am! 78x100cm.
Not sure about the gold frame 🤔
Any comments would be appreciated. I will not put it behind glass. #intuitiveart

From his curls ,to his melanated skin, to how he was able to change his life through his healthy lifestyle @wolfganglisborg is one of my favorite people to follow on Instagram. I am always sending people who want to learn their hair to his page to follow his regimen and learn his ways. He is super humble, very down to earth and honest. Although I don’t know him personally, he has answered many of my questions in the past, and all of his recommendations and advice has always given me great results. I love to see all people win especially my people ✊🏾. I wish you nothing but success and further enlightenment on your future endeavors, I can tell you have a bright one.

Finally coming back to this double portrait commission after wanting to light the first attempt on fire (above). The two individual portraits have a better individual artistic quality I'm looking for in my work and a better likeness of the subjects. I still have some details to flesh out, but I thought a nice wip shot would be worth it. :)

This is the one I regret tearing up. I spent so long on all the layers with mixed media... so I’m going to fix it in the Japanese tradition... with Japan gold size and gold leaf. It may actually make something better out of it. 98x124cm on Fabriano. Swipe to see the untorn piece with some detail shots. #roodartsa #fullmoon #knysnaartist #blackwolf

“Moon people” I’ve been working on this in between cooking and baking since the long recent full moon. I’m definitely a moon child. I have 5 planets in Cancer! All water, no fire and some earth, no air in my astrological chart for those who get this. I was really moved by this full moon. Mixed media:charcoal, pastel, watercolour and gouache and my always favourite gold leaf on Fabriano. 152x126cm
